This large inglenook fireplace is well suited for a log burner. Despite its beautiful appearance, an inglenook fireplace is probably the most inefficient fireplace. Open fires are typically 20% efficient. Wood stoves on the other hand can be 90%. We think its important to be more economical from an eco standpoint. Furthermore, installing a stove is much safer for your home. No more spitting wood on to your new carpet.

Installing a wood burning stove into your inglenook fireplace.

This Jotul stove installation is near Taunton, Somerset. It involves fitting a flue liner and six inch components. We wrap the flue liner in a flue jacket prior to installing it. Despite the extra cost, we feel it is important. As well as making the chimney more efficient, a flue jacket helps prevent condensation. This will increase the life of your flexible flue liner.

We also fit an internal chimney bracket to keep the flue liner away from the cold stone wall. The components are sourced from the team at Mi-flues in Taunton. We cut a large amount of 1.5 mm galvanised plate for the register plate. We sweep the chimney prior to fitting the flue liner.
